With snow still falling across Southern Australia and New Zealand and reported well below temperatures for the months of June-October it is difficult to believe that temperatures came in 4th warmest year ever. Remember that meteorological bureaus said get ready for no snow and warmest year ever. The opposite happened.
While Australia whines about the lack of democracy and freedom in places like Syria, it is doing everything in its power to ensure that nothing resembling either of those things is allowed within its own borders.
Apparently having found itself in a race with France, Germany, the UK and the United States, for which country can eliminate personal liberties, freedom of speech – or even thought – while launching wars all across the world on the basis of protecting those things, Australia is proving itself to be a capable competitor.
The examples of Australia’s thought control policies are legion, but the most recent is surrounding the vaccination hysteria in the ability of free adults to choose whether or not they accept toxic chemicals (or life-saving medicines with no side effects) into their bodies.
According to a report by the Guardian, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia has announced a fatwa of jihad against nurses and midwives who discourage vaccination or are critical of vaccines. Continue reading »
You may not have noticed, but there are two kinds of countries in the world these days: Dictatorships led by authoritarians and democracies that are slowly being taken over by authoritarians. Put Australia into the latter.
Organic & Healthy reports that the land Down Under has become the first nation to begin microchipping its citizens, though NBC News predicted some years ago that, by 2017, Americans would all be microchipped.

A FRIGHTENING new Islamic State magazine has encouraged lone wolves to attack and kill Australians in public acts of terror.
“Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” an article published on Monday in the new English-language online periodical urged.
“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles.
“Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah [community of Muslims] will be victorious.”
The editorial from the terrorist organisation, entitled Among The Believers Are Men, also alleged that Melbourne man Ezzit Raad, who was convicted over a plan to blow-up the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2005, died while fighting for IS in November 2015. Continue reading »
He has two wives? Isn’t polygamy illegal in Australia?
And he is a disability pensioner, but he is well enough to recruit for jihad? UK jihadi Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:
“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).
“Six years’ jail for terrorist recruiter who sent jihadis to Syria,” by Simone Fox Koob, The Australian, September 2, 2016:
A western Sydney terrorist recruiter, a disability pensioner with two wives, has been sentenced to six years jail for helping send young Australian jihadis to Syria to fight.
Hamdi Alqudsi held up one finger and called out “I love you” to his relatives in a Parramatta courtroom yesterday at his Supreme Court sentencing. Continue reading »
- Mufiz Rahaman, 20, said he thought raping a 10-year-old boy was okay
- The Myanmar refugee said it was culturally acceptable in his home land
- The court heard Rahaman tried to offer the boy money and denied rape
- Rahaman is a Rohingya Muslim – as was his young victim
A refugee who raped a ten-year-old boy has claimed he did not know sexually assaulting the child was wrong as it was ‘culturally acceptable’ in his homeland.
Mufiz Rahaman told Sydney’s Downing Centre Court raping children was not seen as morally wrong in his native Myanmar when he pleaded guilty to the aggravated sexual assault of a 10-year-old refugee on Wednesday, the Daily Telegraph reported. Continue reading »
Australian police are investigating a possible “extremist” attack involving a French national who stabbed a British woman to death and injured two others while reportedly yelling “Allahu Akbar.” As Reuters reports, the police are looking into possible “mental health or drug misuse” issues and any “indication of an extremist slant or he was radicalized,” an officer said, noting the man was in Australia on a valid tourist visa and had no known links to radical groups such as Islamic State.
The assault took place on Wednesday at a backpackers’ hostel near Townsville in northern Queensland.
Sports stores across Melbourne are running out of baseball bats as customers take fears of gang violence into their own hands.
The spike in sales, mentioned on 3AW radio’s ‘Rumour File’ segment on Wednesday, has seen Rebel Sports’ Highpoint, Watergardens, Dandenong and Frankston stores in Victoria almost sell out of bats for the sport.
Multiple store assistants said customers told them they were afraid of Melbourne’s Apex gang and were snapping up the bats for self-defence. Continue reading »
A mysterious flesh-eating virus is spreading throughout Australia – and doctors have no idea where it comes from or what causes it.
The Bairnsdale virus, also known as the buruli ulcer is a gruesome flesh-eating bacteria which devours flesh, fat, tendons, nerves and extreme cases even bone.
The virus has been in Victoria for decades with 45 cases already recorded this year – but it could soon move to New South Wales.

CHILDCARE claims totalling more than $27 million of taxpayers’ money are suspected to have been sent to Islamic State terrorists.
Counter-terrorism police and seven other agencies are investigating if the childcare benefits and rebates are being sent overseas to help ISIS and other terrorist groups after a 10-month inquiry culminated in a raid on the Lakemba family day care business of brothers Mohammad and Ibrahim Omar, aged 25 and 27, who operate more than 600 in-home daycare providers.
Two men have been accused of fraudulently claiming $27 million dollars in government benefits and rebates for family childcare centres in south-west Sydney.
Ali Assaad, 22, from Moorebank, allegedly lied to the government and submitted forged time sheets claiming he was looking after seven children at his home for eight hours a day to reap thousands of taxpayer’s dollars, Australian Federal Police claim.
Assaad, who was arrested and charged with fraud on Wednesday, is accused of working with his brother, Mohammad, in the scheme, earning a salary of more than $150,000 a year and allegedly stealing $27 million together since 2012, according to ABC’s 7.30.

CHINESE Triads and West African gangs are among the international organised crime syndicates making the deadly drug ice for the booming Australian market.
Triad society members are using clandestine meth labs they have set up in the Philippines and Malaysia to supply Australian and South-East Asian drug users.
West African gangsters are trafficking ice and other methamphetamines either directly to Asia and Australia or to Asia and Australia via Southern Africa and Western Europe. Continue reading »
A state-run Chinese newspaper has demanded ‘revenge’ against Australia after it backed an international tribunal’s landmark decision to reject its claims over the South China Sea.
A scathing editorial appeared in The Global Times last week after Foreign Minister Julie Bishop did not support China when its bid to secure marine entitlement from the Philippines in the South China Sea was rejected by an international court in July.
The article said Australia had ‘double standards’ and mocked the nation as a ‘paper cat’ whose power means ‘nothing compared to the security of China’. Continue reading »
A cloud-seeding company Hydro Tasmania performed the seeding over the Derwent River watershed a day before the widespread flooding, caused by intense rainstorms, began on June 6, 2016. According to Premier Will Hodgman, the Energy Minister Matthew Groom is looking for an explanation as to why the seeding was authorized despite the heavy rainfalls already forecast.
Cloud seeding is a process of changing the amounts or types of precipitation by adding substances into the air that act in support of cloud condensation or ice nuclei, altering the microphysical processes occurring within the clouds. Continue reading »

As a major leg of many carry trades, the collapse of the Aussie Dollar in the last week has sent ripples through many risk-on positions. Following last week’s plunge in inflation to record lows, one would have assumed that expectations for a ‘stimulating’ rate-cut were baked in to some extent (as AUD plunged then), but this morning’s surprise RBA move has sparked another leg down in the commodity currency, breaking below a crucial uptrend off the January lows as the commodity currency decouples from exuberance in Chinese metals…

Fracking should be banned as a “global threat” as it causes methane leaks contaminating water in the communities near gas wells, says an Australian MP who literally set a river ablaze to draw attention to the adverse effects of the practice.
The companies that extract coal seam gas via fracking are duping people into believing that their technology is safe, while in reality it has contributed greatly to the pollution of sites like Condamine river located in the Australian state of Queensland just near the fracking site, Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham said in an interview to RT.

No risks? Here are some of my latest posts:
Here you can look at all entries I’ve tagged under “vacination”:
An Australian Health Minister named Jill Hennessy has just uttered the most insanely stupid, anti-science quackery ever recorded on the subject of vaccines. As part of her imperial push to poison and cripple as many Australian children (including Aborigine children) as possible, she has publicly insisted that there are “no risks in vaccinating children.”
Australia is a vaccine police state run by pro-vaccine terrorists who threaten, intimidate and engage in the physical assault of people who speak out against the false narratives of so-called “vaccine safety.” Jill Hennessy empowers these vaccine terrorists when she utters such insanely stupid statements, and she puts the lives of tens of millions of children at risk.
